I've been away from here for awhile, but I haven't been crazy off track. In April, I started again making changes and working out. I've lost about 10 pounds since then. I stayed away from here for a bit because I've tried so many times to make a new start only to get discouraged and give up. This time, I feel more positive and determined than ever before to regain my health. I want to be in better shape in my 40's than in my 30's. I'm on the right track for that to happen.
Another thing that has changed for the better is that my hubby is now on board with eating healthy and exercising. In the past he has always been very resistant to changing his eating (which was huge portions of fatty, sugary foods). Recently he was diagnosed with high blood pressure and was told by his doctor that he needed to lose weight, cut out junk food and low his sodium intake. He's lost about 25 pounds so far and I'm really proud of him. I think he understands now how hard it is to change lifetime habits and he realizes that having junk food in the house was hard on me when I was trying to eat right. Anyway, we are all (hubby, youngest daughter & me) working together to get fit and healthy. :)
Speaking of Lindsay, she finished middle school with a bang earning an award for all year merit honor roll (all A's all year) and an award for concert band. Keith and I are very proud of her and are excited for the new adventure of high school to begin this fall. She is taking Summer Gym (4 hours/5 days a week/3 weeks) to get her PE credit so she doesn't have to 'burn a period' during the school year on PE. She's working hard lifting weights, running, doing stadium runs, and playing tennis to earn her credit. She's super excited about how her body is changing and reshaping itself. She's also pretty proud of the fact that she's putting herself in a position to try new types of sports (she's been a soccer player since first grade). I love seeing her get into tennis and strength training!
Well, better go workout so I can get a shower and start my day!
